Key Opportunities:

Growing Need for Biodegradable and Sustainable Solutions:

Eco-friendly products are becoming increasingly important to consumers, driving demand for wet woven nonwovens made from natural fibers such as cellulose and bamboo. Compared to their synthetic counterparts, these materials are more environmentally friendly and biodegradable, making them attractive for use in towels, filters and agricultural mulches. Recycled fiber is another material that manufacturers plan to use to improve durability.

Technological Developments for Improved Efficiency:

Technological advances in fiber technology and processing are having a positive impact on the wet coated nonwovens market. The aim of these development works is to improve the usability, strength and durability of the materials. For example, bicomponent fibers mix two or more elements into a single fiber to obtain special properties such as better fire resistance or water absorption. In addition, due to the development of resin binders, fabrics with better adhesion and better performance are produced.
